Under the new proposal which still hasn't been officially released, do we know how third and fourth round of playoffs would work? Could Boston and LA meet in the third round?
Something tells me as much as we fans don't want that, the East-centric NHL does because they would love and eat up Pittsburgh vs. Boston SCF (For example, I guess if Detroit is now in an East conf, they would also love DET vs. PIT again), even if the downside is that one year they could have San Jose vs. Dallas SCF.
If this is how the NHL will do latter rounds, one point in the NHL's favor is that this is more like NFL/MLB, where some fans do enjoy (or dream about) match ups between teams that are not too far from each other geographically, (Bay Bridge Series, Subway Series, a Giants/Jets or Niners/Raiders SB, etc).
